Of the many photohgraphs that Martin has taken of the Phillip Iland Classic for 2014, my favourite is the shot showing John Coffin assisting George Hetrel push the damaged Bugatti (Car 35 with the damaged tail) back to the garages.
From Martin Stubbs:- "1935 Aston Martin 'Ulster' LM20 (CML720) I remember this car distinctly, it was 1953 and I was 10 at the time and at an age when some cars left a indelible impression never to be forgotten. Peter Dale arrived at our home at 55 Wills Street, Kew to have LM20 photographed to record its restoration and for advertising in Australian Motor Sport.
As you enter the gates to the pit area for this annual event, you walk into a kaleidoscope of colours, shapes and sounds, a rich array of different marques representing motorsport from the 20s through to a 2005 Westfield Clubman. Each year Historic Sandown seems to attract over 300 entries, not only past competitors but always a crop of new ones to avoid repetition and to keep stimulating public interest.
